They’re killing machines: Newtown families have a right to sue the makers of the AR-15

Cedric Larry Ford gunned down three and injured at least 14 more with an automatic rifle in Kansas Thursday, blasting away randomly from his car and then in the industrial building where he worked. Just another day in America.

This nation cannot awaken from a nightmare: Madmen wield weapons of war to indiscriminately slaughter, in their workplaces, on streets, in movie theaters and in elementary schools.

Ford added to the tally of slaughter as Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis is considering the merits of a wrongful death suit — brought by family members of Sandy Hook Elementary School children and one survivor of that assault.

They are trying to sue Remington, America’s top manufacturer of guns and ammunition in the civilian marketplace, for negligent entrustment in manufacturing AR-15s for purchase and use by ordinary Americans.

These assault rifles are weapons of war.

Just so much wrong in that one part of posted article.

OK controllers, what army uses AR-15s as their infantry rifle?
The civilian version of the AK-47 is not automatic but semi-automatic, giant difference.
not even going to go there on the assault rifle bull.

By the way, the Kansas guy was a prohibited person and could not lawfully get a weapon and there appears to be a straw purchase by an old girlfriend and she has been charged.
